Father's Message - Our Response To Covid-19
As we move into the middle part of Spring, covid infection rates have plateaued or started to fall once again, people faithful attention to distancing and the wearing of masks is working. There’s one thing left for us to put this pandemic behind us – vaccination. There are now more vaccines and appointments available than are being utilized. Pope Francis, Archbishop Thompson, and myself have been vaccinated. I remember as a child in the 1950’s getting vaccinated for the polio virus. With the cooperation of all that terrible scourge has been all but eliminated. Do your part and get vaccinated!
Emerging From The Pandemic Steering Committee – Our steering committee met again this week. With the encouragement of our County Health Official and parishioner Dr. Moorman, we will move ahead with the opening up of the parish. In regards to Sunday Eucharist, we have replaced the hymnals to the pews. The two central sections of the pews are open for people to exercise personal good judgment in regards to physical distancing. The two side sections will remain structured for those who will be more comfortable with structured physical distancing. The screens will be retired to a closet. We do ask that those who wish to receive communion on the tongue to wait till last. All should continue to wear masks. These arrangements are in line with the new guidelines issued by the Archdiocese this week. https://strosechurch.saintrose.net/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Archdiocesan-Covid-Guideline-May-2021.pdf
The committee is looking forward to rebooting a variety of committees and activities in the months ahead. Much will depend on people stepping forward to volunteer. This includes Sunday morning coffee and donuts, visitation of the homebound, jail ministry, and a variety of small groups that meet for reflection, prayer, and outreach.
Take time to pray during this special time. Seek to follow the way of Jesus as we move forward. Make a visit to our Gethsemane Chapel. Read More…
